2021 Daiwa Spartan SJ

By Daiwa


X45X Full Shield Technology is 25% more efficient than standard X45 technology. With increased torsional stiffness, blanks armed with X45X resist blank twist during casting & jigging. This characteristic prevents the blank from losing stored energy during the cast, ensuring that every bit of force you put into your cast, is transferred through the blank and ultimately to your chosen lure.


3DX supports the lower power section of the rod by knitting densely packed carbon fibers in 3 directions to achieve a six wrap rectangular weave. Power through the blank under load is distributed evenly in all directions allowing it to maintain its profile and form. This process confines the rod’s power to the lower section of the rod, increases power, eliminates blank twist and collapse, all the while reducing angler fatigue.


Daiwa’s carbon fibre reel seat that’s minimal in weight, yet high in strength and sensitivity. Our ultimate high end, high performance reel seat.


Through the use of nano resin control technology in the blank construction process, Nanoplus allows for increased graphite density to be achieved within a graphite rod blank.


Daiwa’s Spartan range of offshore rods provided keen anglers new options for dedicated lure-casting and jigging actions for chasing Australia’s hardest fighting sportfish. New for 2021, is the addition of the specialist Spartan slow jigging (SJ) models into the already extensive line up.

Holding nothing back, the new range of Spartan SJ rods feature all the best components and technology which deliver unmatched performance.
Beginning with a HVF Nanoplus graphite blank which is lighter & stronger thanks to the nanoplus resin, Spartan SJ then also receives the full X45X Full Shield treatment, reducing twisting under load thanks to increased torsional stiffness. Spartan SJ also features Daiwa’s patented 3DX carbon weave on the lower most section of the blank increasing bottom end grunt and lifting power for pulling stubborn fish off the bottom.

Outfitted with Daiwa’s Airsensor reel seats, Spartan SJ rods are incredibly lightweight and when paired with a reel such as a Lexa HD or Saltiga LD provides a compact yet powerful outfit capable of dishing out plenty of hurt on hard fighting reef species.

Fuji stainless steel silicon carbide (SiC) guides manage lineflow effectively and the clever adjustable EVA pad in the split section means you can protect the rod when travelling in your boats rod holders.

Available in PE ratings 2, 3 & 4 in both spin and spiral wrapped overhead configurations, the new range of Spartan SJ rods will be a welcome addition to the range.
